National Lobster Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Lobster Day - Today is National Lobster Day!

Lobster was once considered peasant food!

In the 1800s, lobsters were incredibly plentiful, and New Englanders could simply walk down the beach and capture them during low tide.

Many servants lived off of lobster during this time period.

In fact, one Massachusetts community had to pass a law that limited how often you could serve lobster to your servants. It was a modest three times a week!

Today, lobster is considered a luxurious delicacy all over the world. In the state of Maine alone, lobster fishing is a $1 billion industry. There are many ways to enjoy lobster, but the most popular cooking methods are boiling, baking, steaming, and grilling.
